Valentine’s Day Countdown for Him or Her!
Let’s face it! There is a TON of pressure to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift idea for your spouse, and that pressure multiplies thanks to the time crunch of our busy schedules. That’s why we’ve pulled together this quick and easy countdown in which your love will receive a fabulous and free Valentine’s Day card to accompany a small gift every hour of the day!
I’ve always found cooking up a thoughtful Valentine’s gift idea for my husband difficult, because many gifts marketed this time of year are for women (my hubby would definitely be confused if I bought him flowers!). So, if you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day gift for him or simply looking for a Valentine’s gift with lots of WOW factor, then read on!
Materials You’ll Need
Before we get started on this adorable Valentine’s Day countdown, make sure that you have the following items ready to go! We’ve linked you up with some of our go-to products!
1. Our free Valentine’s Day printables (found at the bottom of the page)
3. A medium to large sized box
5. 24 Small Envelopes (3 ⅝ X 6 ½ inches)
6. Tape or adhesive of choice
7. Wrapping paper (optional)
Valentine’s Day Printables Prep
We’ve joined forces with the incomparable Leah Aldous from Leah Aldous Custom Invitation & Design Work to create these timeless and showstopping cards and labels, and the best part is that you are grabbing these Valentine’s printables for FREE! Aren’t these amazing?! Make sure to check out Leah’s website for all your design needs!
First you’ll need to pick 24 of the 30 cards we have designed for you, and in case you want to create some of your own Valentine’s Day cards, we’ve included a few blank ones, too! Once everything is printed, cut out the cards and place each of them into an envelope, and then attach the appropriate envelope label with adhesive. Another option is to place the cards into the small boxes or bags and place the envelope labels directly onto the boxes or bags!
